House to Home: Accessory Organization Part 1

I have gotten a few requests to share how I organize accessories. Here are a few things that have helped keep things in tact and easy to find:) ...
DIY Scarf Hanger DIY Scarf Hanger 4


DIY Scarf Hanger 2
(Scarves from Left to Right: H&M, Reverie Market, Three Bird Nest, J. Crew, Deloom)

I originally made this piece above for necklaces (one of my first DIY's on IHOD!), using a wooden cut from the lumber yard, white paint, and drawer pulls. Since getting a second one, I use this for scarves. This is an easy DIY Scarf or jewelry hanger to attempt yourself! 

Jewelry TrayJewelry Dish
(Necklaces: H&M, Loren Hope, BMB, Twillypop, Gift, DIY)

I use a larger round trey for statement necklaces. Keeps them from being tangled, and its a nice display of color:) This only works for larger necklaces though. Fine necklaces are hung. It would be so easy for me to keep collecting jewelry but I keep a rule to not become excessive. If I receive a new one, I must give one away (usually to sisters:)). A good practice not to be too materialistic. How do you store your jewelry?


*Giveaway planned for today has been moved to July! A few fun ones coming up!

  1. i should really practice this. i have so much! every time i get a new piece i should start gifting my others.

    and i need some organization. unfortunately i tried the bowl for necklaces thing, but they all got tangled and when i'm on the run, i ended up going without a statement piece because they were all jumbled :( I'm going to invest in a necklace holder. maybe make my own...

  2. The hooks idea is great for necklaces, all of mine are in a tangled up mess right now.

  3. I always want to make something like this, or buy something I can hang my jewelry and scarves from. But then I think about it, and realise that I don't have anything to hang from it.

    And then I think about it some more, and realise that I don't have any of these things, because I always lose them, because I have nothing to hang on it.

    Makes sense? Maybe it's time I get one.

  4. *hang it on, should've been my second last words. I get confused.

  6. I always want to be more organized with my things. I have a decent system going now but I can't wait to live in a home where I have more room to REALLY display my goods.

  8. Oh. I love both ways of Organizing, I currently organize my Necklaces on a necklace stand... but I like this idea better.

  12. I always end up hanging them on my poor bronze earring holder because if I put them on a tray things just get thrown on there and I can't see what I actually have to wear.

  13. That's such a great idea, I have so many necklaces I never wear that just sit there. I'd much rather seen family or friends using them then just sitting on my dresser!

  14. What a great functional and pretty way to display these items! The knobs/hooks are so cute :)

  15. Those are great ways to organize jewelry! I need a scarf rack pretty badly, mine are folded in baskets - pretty...but when you pull one out, you pull them all out! :)

  16. I love how you hang your scarves; so pretty. I keep my large necklaces and bracelets in a silverware tray, and then the smaller stuff is just hung in a jewelry box. I love how the bright beaded necklaces look in a tray; such a pretty decor moment.

  25. I love the jewelry dish idea for statement necklaces! I would never have thought of that, and I've been trying to come up with various ways to store my necklaces.

    So pretty!

  26. I have been looking for ideas for jewelry organization. I think this would work out great! I have one corner space to work with and I may make a few of those drawer pull hangers (different sizes) for scarves, necklaces etc.

    Thanks, Anna!

    Cheers.
